Glenda Taylor Memorial Ride tonight

6:30-8pm, June 15, 2015
Mulvane Art Museum, Washburn University
10-mile round trip

Glenda Taylor was a beloved cyclist, artist, and community advocate in Topeka. She was hit by a car and killed last Sunday, June 7, during a warmup ride as part of a time trials series in Crawford County.

Tonight, the Kaw Valley Bicycle Club will host a memorial ride in her honor, starting and ending at Washburn University, where she was the chair of the Art department. The ride will convene at the Mulvane Art Museum, just south of 17th Street on Jewell Ave. in Topeka.

Taylor was an accomplished artist and athlete, having won awards for her achievements in both ceramics and cycling.

The driver has been charged, and the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.
